>> The version on GitHub doesn't appear to be available as a PEAR package, so the pear portgroup probably won't help much anyway. So I would guess pear-TCPDF should be deleted and a new port should be created named TCPDF or perhaps php-TCPDF, which would install in whatever way is usual. (I don't know much about PHP packaging, sorry.)
